Everyday is Birthday?

There are many sayings out there that tell you what kind of attitude we should have towards our life. You know those quotes like “live like there’s no tomorrow”, “live like every day is your last one”. But why nobody came up with this one – live like everyday is your birthday, huh? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reason to celebrate on a daily basis? Since birthday is a special day to all people I think we would be much happier and in a better mood as mankind. On the other hand this would probably devaluate the importance of birthday celebration… And while birthday is just once a year there’s absolutely no reason to not try our best to feel happy and optimistic 365 days of the year.

Today is the day when I turn 31 and as long as I am healthy & happy, this is just a number that won’t affect my life in any negative way & I hope it will stay like this as long as possible so I don’t have to worry about it. It’s become a birthday tradition that I treat myself to a new perfume on this occasion but for the last few years I’ve proven to be very indecisive and I’d make my final decision few months after my birthday. But not this year! This time I actually made up my mind on time and my new treasure, a stunning bottle of Ormaie L’Ivree Bleue came to me on Monday. If you need a reminder of how it smells like please go back to my review. I’m glad to add it to my perfume wardrobe.

What else could I wear on my birthday than Prada Amber Pour Homme, a perfume that ignited my perfume passion? This flacon here is almost empty but worry not, I’ll get another one later.

It’s a Celebration!

bday-cake-30

Throughout the year there is a number of days each of us considers as special. Some of them are more global, like Christmas, celebrated all over the work. But then there are those that are dear to you and only you. My special day happens to be today. On February 24 I celebrate my birthday. Generally speaking a birthday is a birthday and I don’t make a big fuss about it. But this year it seems a bit more special thanĀ  2 or 3 years ago. Today I turn 30 and as long as it doesn’t really make a big difference in my head, it is some sort of a life milestone. I may be still young at heart but I’m no longer in my twenties. Some say that once you turn thirty it’s really the time when you start to mature. I wonder if it’s actually true or if it’s another social myth. I started a family celebration at the weekend and during this week I’ll meet with a bunch of friends.

For the next decade of my life I wish myself a lot of patience on the road to achieving my dream of becoming a perfumer. I also hope to be of good health for the years to come and may my flourishing imagination and passion for fragrance continue to grow bigger as I get older. And for you my dear friends, my dear virtual family, please imagine that you get a piece of this pistacchio-truffle birthday cake and it would be an honour if you drank a flute of champagne or a glass of wine for me tonight!
